I was watching a ski tip which suggested for better flow to change your thinking as to where the start and finish of the turn takes place. A very subtle change can make significant improvement of flow. It worked for me on the ski hill, so I wondered about a similarity in the pool. (Seems when skiing I try to relate things to swimming - like separating snowflakes being like separating water molecules.) This made me think of experimenting with with the stroke. Truly a cycle and to improve continuity and smoothness of flow, maybe there is a better thinking pattern which may help me. It isn't what to do but rather when to do the different parts of the cycle and to consider where to mark a beginning point. None-the-less --- it is all good !
If you're not swimming; then you should be skiing......
